Hi, welcome to the forums.

 

The recovery options are included on Windows 10 now.

 

Here are some tips on how to use the different ways to recover:

Are you having some specific issue right now? Do you need to recover the factory condition of Windows 10 on your PC?

I just got my laptop a few weeks ago and wanted to make sure i had the settings for factory refresh/reinstall just in case.  I am very paranoid and dont want ot have to buy windows 10.

Hi

 

For what I know, on these days, the factory reset functions are the one included on Windows 10 to do a refresh. You can always do a "restore point" and also "create a recovery drive" from Windows.

 

The Windows 10 serial number is included on the machine BIOS, so in case that the Windows 10 factory refresh does not work, you can install Windows 10 from a USB stick and will take the number of the BIOS (Maybe someone with more experience can correct me if I'm wrong).

 

If everything goes wrong and you need to install Windows 10 from a CD USB Stick, the Lenovo default software is very easy to install, it is just installing "Lenovo Companion" and "Lenovo Settings" from the Windows Store. From Lenovo Companion it can download the drivers it requires. Or you can even surf support.lenovo.com and check all the drivers for your specific model.

 

I hope this gives you some help.

 

Regards

 

Martin

Buried in that link under "use a recovery drive..." is a link to how to create a recovery flash drive.  (Which you should do!)
